Hello,

When deciding on the university to apply to a lot of factors should be considered and put in order of personal preference and priority. Some of such factors include (but are not limited to): tuition costs, cost of living, distance from home, campus-style, distance from a city, surrounding area, diversity, Job prospects, networking opportunities, course modules, dedication to sustainability, student-staff ration, etc. Here are some useful links for comparing universities as well:

I would recommend making pros and cons lists of all your choices and cancelling them out accordingly.

Accreditation is a stamp of quality and prestige for a business school and its programmes. Aston is part of an elite group of business schools thanks to our triple accreditation from AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA.

This course will equip you with detailed knowledge and a deep understanding of today’s global commercial environment. It will explore how business is conducted across borders, examine various business functions and their role in international commerce, whilst looking at strategic management and economics in an international business context.

All Aston University Business postgraduate students have the opportunity to take part in the Universities Business Challenge (UBC) Global Masters. The UBC Global Masters is a team-based business simulation event that provides participants with the opportunity to act as a board of directors, who have taken responsibility for improving the performance of a company.

A work placement taken as part of your master's programme can be hugely beneficial to your career prospects. It will enhance your CV and give you a competitive advantage when applying for graduate roles. As part of this course, you’ll have the opportunity to undertake a work placement. You can spend from one month to 12 months with a company of your choice, in the UK or overseas. You’ll apply what you’ve learnt on a daily basis and gain valuable professional experience. The Careers and Placements team at Aston University were recognised as the 'Best University Careers/Employability Service' by the National Undergraduate Employability (NUE) Awards 2020 and they will be on hand to help you secure both placement and graduate jobs.

MSc International Business at Aston will prepare you for a wide range of professional and management careers in global organisations across business functions and sectors, including consultancy, strategy, banking, finance, marketing and HR. Some of our graduates have successfully used the knowledge and skills they acquired in this program to establish their own business and take it to a global scale.

Hope this has helped.

I had an offer from Catolica and ESCP for the double degree but rejected it. Soured on Catolica.

UCD, Cranfield and Bath are probably the 3 best options there. In Ireland, UCD is way ahead of DCU. Why not apply for places like LSE, Imperial, ESCP, Mannheim and so on?

why did you apply to Catolica and then rejected the offer?

Well, the main problem is the price Cranfield(26k) and Bath (22k).

I do not think I will be accepted in those schools such as Imperial or LSE.

I don't know. I had a change of heart I think. I started to think that a school in Portugal was a bad idea and I should apply elsewhere. The salary after the course was very poor, going by the numbers in the FT. Just went off the idea of going there.

Price is a killer. You are aware that while the price of the UCD course may be slightly lower than others that the cost of living in Dublin is brutal?

Getting in to the likes of LSE is a bit of a long shot. Yes. That's true. Applications are expensive too.

Suggestion: The MiM programme in Mannheim is well-regarded and you can do an exchange at top schools elsewhere. Have you considered applying there? I believe it's free for EU students, not sure about UK now. You will need 600 GMAT I think.

If you wait until next year then you could apply to the likes of RSM (low fees), SSE (no fees), CBS (no fees). Maybe you are aware of this info already.

Well, I single out those business school because of the local language. Im not apt to learn Dutch or Swedish, maybe German. I think my first options are UCD, Strathclyde, and Catolica.

I will apply to Cologne University and Technical University Munich as well. As I said, I am fully willing to learn German.

Yes, Dublin is an expensive city. But I am sure that Ireland will be one of the few countries that are going to recover more quickly than any other country. Also, I am European so I would not have any bureaucratic problem with residency.
